Recent Charleston reviews

  • One of the best places we've stayed!

    "When can we move in? This is a wonderful place to call home during you vacation. The décor is gorgeous, as you can see in the photos. We mostly dined on the back patio. The bed was super-comfy. The cost was higher than we normally spend on accommodations, but it was worth it. Loved the location, too. As another reviewer mentioned, you access the 2nd bedroom through the master bedroom. This was not a problem since there were just two of us, without a need for a 2nd bedroom."

  • Perfect weekend get away

    "We come to Charleston several times a year and this was our first time renting instead of a hotel. This was the cutest, most charming place. It was in walking distance to upper king which has come back to life. There are plenty of places with in a two minute walk right down the street. As much as I claim to be half local this definitely made me feel at home. It was everything I love about old homes in Charleston. I didn't want to leave! We will be back soon!"

  • Perfect Location, Clean , and Charming Villa In The Heart of Charleston

    "My 16 year old daughter, her friend, and myself were looking for a place to stay for our first time in Charleston for Yallfest this past weekend. I decided to give the villa a try after searching for downtown hotels that were way out of our price range and since we were going to many events centered on King Street and Blue Bicycle books, we didn't want to stay near the airport. The villa did not disappoint us! We arrived late on Thursday night from the airport and never having been to Charleston before, I was more than a little nervous about the safety of the area and if we would have any problems after the taxi dropped us off. We had no problems arriving so late at night. We got into the villa just fine. The villa itself was the perfect place for us. Cozy and very charming. The king sized bed upstairs was very comfortable and after walking around all day I slept like a baby at night. The futon downstairs was perfect for my daughters friend. There were plenty of towels and linens for us. The one thing was the bed cover/blanket was thin and since we came in so late on Thursday night I didn't have much thought to turning on the heat since the nights were pretty chilly. It would have been nice to have and extra blanket to put on the bed. Guess it is maybe just being from Wisconsin we're used to piling on the blankets. The second night was fine since I just turned the heat on to get the chill out. Other than that, which was no big deal, the villa was perfect. It was clean, the extra half bath was a bonus. The location was perfect! No need for a rental car. It was incredibly quiet considering we were in the middle of the city. We walked everywhere. The visitors center was near and from there I hopped on the free trolley that took me to the City Market. Then I walked all the way back. There are numerous choices for eating within walking distance. I started each day with a walk to the Wild Pastry bakery for my coffee and a quiche or scone. I would honestly stay here again in a heartbeat. I am so glad that I choose to take a chance and stayed at the villa. We give it 3 thumbs up! Thanks to Megan for helping to make our stay the best!!"

  • Great location and amenities

    "I had a wonderful stay at this cottage house in Charleston. The property was clean, fully stocked with linens/shampoos/dishes/tour books/maps, and had AC which was awesome. The parking lot in the back is a little tight but it's off street parking in Charleston which is hard to find. The location is great, walking distance to MUSC and lots of great restaurants...if you are in the area make sure to try Sugar Bakeshop for amazing cupcakes, right on Cannon Street. I would definitely stay here again!"
